Small finishes

You may recall the Monoprice Ultra-thin Light Table pouch I made, yeah? Well, I made it only for the size of the lightbox, knowing I would have to do something for the power adapter. I simply made a small matching bag, and tossed it in a basket that has other power...

TV tray ironing board

My father-in-law had a set of four nice wooden TV dinner tables that he no longer used so I offered to take them off his hands. This was a super easy, super quick project. There are a million tutorials online, and I went with this one: Tv Tray Pressing Table. I had...

Recovered office chair

Recovered office chair

The chair I use in my craft room is a standard counter-height office chair. The dark boring blue color, which didn't match my room from the start. I thought to myself, if I can recover an ironing board, maybe I can recover my chair. I had no idea what I was doing, but...

recovered ironing boards

I made these last fall, but never posted about them. I have a small table-top ironing board that had a whitish cover. Over the years, my gross well water has stained it, and it just looked gross so I wanted to make it pretty. A long time ago, I won "pink kelp stripes"...
